Asus ZenFone 2 – Review

Asus ZenFone 2 is the successor to the much successful Asus ZenFone first generation line up of smartphones from Asus. It has a stylish design and a generous choice of hardware under the hood. It has one the best cameras in this segment of mobiles. The shots that came out of the mobile surprised me most of the times. It has a 4 GB of RAM which is a good thing for multi tasking and snappy UI, but at the same time, Android does not kill the apps running in the background and that drains the battery a lot. The Intel Atom processor has such a graceful performance. I think that’s the best choice for this 4 GB multi-tasking beast. Also I loved the 18 W quick charging adapter. So here is what I think about the ZenFone 2 in a nutshell.

What I liked

  • Brush metal finish and quality plastic used in the construction
  • 4 GB of RAM is a multi-tasking beast
  • Intel Atom Moorefield processor, easily the fastest we have seen in the segment
  • 13 MP Camera at the back
  • Fast and Snappy UI
  • Perfect pricing across all the variants of ZenFone 2
  • 18 W quick charging adapter

What I didnt like

  • Average to poor performance of the 3000 mAh battery
  • Lack of OIS for those perfect video footages
  • Over sampling algorithm by Pixel master technology, even when there is no need to.
  • Unnecessary baggage of preinstalled bloatware
  • Confusing naming convention for all the variants of ZenFone 2
